The Sigmund-Thun Klamm is a beautiful gorge in Kaprun (about 15 minutes' drive from here). Entry is about €7 per person, which is definitely worth it! We recommend starting at the gorge, then after that taking a little walk around the gorges' source lake (about 2km). There is a children's play park at the tip of the lake too with a cafe/bar serving delicious refreshments :)

The Mooserboden damm is absolutely breathtaking. The electric blue waters against steep mountain rock faces give this places an other-worldly feel. You can easily reach this destination by taking a funicular from the valley floor. If you're feeling really adventurous though you can walk up from the valley floor up and past the two large damms. It's a treck but its definitely worth it to see the beautiful rawness of the environment.

Previously a skiing piste, this is now an areas solely reserved for ski tourers. The piste is still groomed, so its the perfect mixture of getting the physical kick out ski touring going up, but then being able to safely ski down a groomed and managed piste.
